Phantom Polka

I had particularly strange and inspiring experience on Friday. I was on a conference call with a few colleagues at around 1pm Pacific time when, all of a sudden rich sound of accordians and German voices started calling out from my pocket. When I reached in to investigate I found that my iphone had randomly started playing the Steelers Polka! I wasn't using the internet; I wasn't using the youtube app. For those few seconds at least, I wasn't even thinking about the Steelers (well okay maybe a little bit...deep down in that subconscious section). To make this even stranger...

the same thing happened to a good friend of mine at around 5:30 Pacific time yesterday. He's a die-hard Iggles fan that I have been proselytizing for the past 3 weeks since they were booted from the playoffs. Did anybody else have a similar experience yesterday. I was somewhat wondering if some benign hacker had designed a prank to effect Iphone users. The only correlation that I can draw between me and my buddy's experiences is that we had both watched the Steelers polka on our Iphones within the past 2 weeks. (Me by choice, him by force....hehe).
